Growing up with an incarcerated father and a mother who struggled with mental illness and substance abuse, Deran gained knowledge and experience of discrimination, poverty, and social services at a very early age. She created Black Therapists Rock and her current professional areas of expertise include International Social Work, Gender Issues and Trauma/Anxiety Disorders. She joins Ronan to discuss her military experience, transitioning into civilian life, the socio-economic inequities within drug research and therapies amongst African American communities, and her exploration of psychedelics and cannabis.
